All I was suggesting is that you may want to verify that the syntax you are using is resulting in the package selection you want, and if not to adjust accordingly.

For clarity: this is supposedly a part of the %post section of a kickstart file.
Furthermore, the version above should probably be cleaned to this:
[code]# backup the rc local file
# Enable a call to your script
echo "BCFINSTALL=1 ; /etc/rc.d/bcfinstall.sh" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local

# Create your script
cat > /etc/rc.d/bcfinstall.sh <<EOF
#!/bin/bash
#Your install script commands here
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/isos/applogic/centos57.iso
chmod 755 /isos/applogic/centos57.iso
mount -r -o loop /isos/applogic/centos57.iso /mnt/centos
cp /mnt/centos/CentOS/bfc*.iso /isos/applogic/
cp /mnt/centos/interactive.txt /isos/applogic/
mount -r -o loop /isos/applogic/bfcinstall.iso /mnt/cdrom
#
/mnt/cdrom/fcinstall.sh -c /isos/applogic/interactive.txt -x /isos/applogic/bfcext.iso
#
# As last action disable the call to your script from the rc.local
sed -i "s/BCFINSTALL/#BCFINSTALL/" /etc/rc.d/rc.local
EOF

# Make sure that rc.local can execute the /etc/rc.d/bcfinstall.sh
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/bcfinstall.sh[/code]
